Hamburglar signs 3 year extension with Ottawa, averaging $1.35 cap hit



Guess this is goodbye to Lehner, since it sounded like they are intending on keeping Anderson as a vet to go with Hammond and all 3 goalies are subject to waivers.

Leafs can hire the best people in the NHL. But they're still going to have a hell of a time getting the dead weight off of their roster in a salary cap era.

it's not that hard to get rid of the dead weights

Apparently, front loaded contract since he has an out after 5 years. He's looking at about $8M in the first couple of years.

Buffalo throws a tantrum after losing out on McDavid, now apparently they are doing the same over Babcock

No tantrum was thrown when Sabres didn't win the draft lotto, all Murray said was that he was disappointed in not winning the lotto, which anyone would be, then the media spun it as Murray insulting Eichel, which wasn't the case at all. Eichel said it was a non issue and he understood what Murray meant.

Reports are coming out that Sabres are angry with Babcock because apparently a deal was agreed to in principal for similar dollars and that plans for a presser on Monday with Babcock was in the works. It appears Babcock backed out and took the Toronto deal as Leafs threw in the sweetener of player personel decisions/semi GM. I was indifferent to the Sabres pursuing Babcock, he's a good coach but my personal hesitation was that Babcock wants to win now and might rush or abandon the young core group growing together and bringing in his pet Dan Cleary and such like how AV brings Tanner Glass everywhere.

He'll be a good coach for the Leafs but I wonder if this means they will abandon plans for a proper rebuild. I don't think that would be good in the long run as IMO Kessel and Phaneuf are just not core leaders you build around to win, they can be star/good players on a winning team but should not be part of any core leadership group.

the difference between Babcock/cleary and Av/glass is that Av actually plays glass where Babcock I think scratched cleary alot this year...

Babcock just committed career suicide. But $50M is a good reason to.

If Babcock can turn the Leafs around and win them a cup he will prob be considered the greatest coach of all time.... We all know Scotty Bowman will always have that title tho!!

long term bets that can potentially make me money next season

1. Oilers finishing with another top 3 pick in the draft
2. Maple Leafs missing the playoffs
3. Jack Eichel winning the Calder over McDavid
4. Ekblad being a Norris candidate

would anyone bet on these if they showed up? lol i might actually put down some money on the first 2
